Hi,

I am making a job portal. There will be job offers from abroad but for czech target group.

So applicants will be Czech and emploers from abroad.

The problem is how to choose a domain as I need to both sides to understand.

Should it be in local language or in English? And what about extension?

Examples:

somethinginenglish.com

somethinginenglish.cz -my country

somethinginczechlanguage.cz

somethinginczechlanguage.com

Thanks!

Why not all of them? It costs next to nothing.

That's a tough one :) I would suggest creating a more universal name. You are creating a business that is Czech specific today but may apply to other regions in the future.

If the applicants are and always will be Czech, it is probably safe to assume the majority of traffic will be from that location. If you are not planning on expanding to other markets i would lean towards finding a czech word that is available, makes sense, and is short enough (under 6 letters) i.e najaty.com najaty.cz


If you are planning on expansion to other countries i would agree with Maninder in which you choose a more universal name.
